the country a clarifying moment. we may not have gotten to know mr. obama, the man, better today. but we certainly got to know him the politician, better. his inaugural speech should put to rest of all time the notion much favored by the admirers in the press he is a centrist. he is not. he said a recovery had begun. his prescription for accelerating that anemic, was barely heard. medicare, medicaid and social security. he did call it, fiction, that all societies' ills could be cured through government alone. but it was a prelude to wonders of the collection action by which he meant government action. on gay rights, climate change. voters op regulation, immigration reform and gun control. only saying he would support the spread of democracy worldwide, which is the george w. bush freedom agenda. by failing to swear off the use of drone attacks did he say anything likely to disappoint the base on the left. the president is a man of the left. after today, the departure from the orthodoxy should fool no one. >> bret: still, you have the republican house, that stands really in the way of what
put at the front of his presidency. >> president obama has tried to unify the country on the issue of race. he understands that we have not overcome, in terms of race. that dr. king's dream is very much alive. we haven't fulfilled this dream. this is a very historic year. the 50th anniversary of the march on washington for jobs and freedom. this is also an anniversary of megaer evens. and his wife, myrlie evers-williams will speak. >> and he is free to speak out on the second term. >> why not? these are american issues we are talking about. we talk about jobs and the economy. if dr. king were alive today, he would press president obama to end the inequality in our country to address poverty. those are universal now because poverty is a white issue, as well as a black and hispanic issue, as well. >> cokie pointed out. this is when we try to set aside our political differences. that's some of the unfinished business of president obama's first term. >> the main part of the unfinished business of his first term had to do with the divisions in this country. he said he was going to bring

morning. thank you for taking my call. i wanted to ask the country to pray for our president obama -- i am a republican, and i voted republican this year. that was to my commitment to the republican party. i am very disappointed with my party. i do not like the direction they are taking. to be honest with you, i do not like the fact that they are not cooperating in the house or any other place with democrats or with president obama. i would ask the president if he would open upper a new investigation on the 9/11 attacks on this country. i am unsatisfied with the commission report that was put out. host: that was james in brandon, florida. you can see on the capital, five large flags hanging down. the explanation of the five different flags they had hanging down -- this is a congressional report. framed against the black -- the backdrop -- the backdrop of red, white and blue -- we have at ross flag with starch -- stars are arranged in the circle. the next two flags are the flags the u.s. adopted when the president elect's home state became part of the u.s. the middle flag represents the 50

or failed second term. that would give the country about a 30% chance of obama and the nation experiencing an improved security of economic climate. after four years if obama is reelected. i do not suggest that the gamble should not be taken. simply, that history into playing with politics might give us pause. so what does history predicted about a second term for barack obama lacks were he reelected with so few presidents having success at that time in office. what are the challenges that face those who have trouble or failed second terms, and what about others to succeed? and ken barack obama overcome these challenges if he is reelected to become a member of that select group of presidents that waded through the quagmires of second terms come and somehow came through relatively unscathed? success in a second term does not imply that there were not failures, or significant stumbles. some even severe during that tenure. but the net impact of that time in office had to be the fulfillment of a significant number of the following measures of success. first, the president must provide defense
addresses the country and he will try to project his will that would block his legacy. opposition to barack obama in some quarters is searing. hear how sean hannity greeted the obama victory in november -- >> america wanted barack obama for four more years, and now we have him. by the way, good luck with that. chris: that was a bit sarcastic. today as the president take the oath, the new nbc wall street poll traces a geographic divide. 60% of americans who live in cities say they like the president personally, and like his policies. in the suburbs 43% like him and his policies. but in rural areas it's just 27%. and that's what you see playing out in congress. also inside the poll 6-10 strong republicans dislike the president personally as well as his policies. joe, there's a deep groove of resistance out there, and i guess the question is, how does the first term look, when you look back on it, compared to how it's looking? >> he's going to drive them completely crazy, those 60% of hrps in this term. and the reason for it is that there's an enormous story that we're missing, and that is we
is fantastic, the atmosphere is fantastic. >> we are a country of strong people and good people. obama has the ability to bring the best in all of us. >> i think we should still celebrate. >> the first inauguration of america's first black president was extraordinary. four years ago nearly 2 million people braved the cold and squeezed into the mall. there will be fewer today. here on the steps of the capital president obama will address the crowd. a timeless ceremony with contemporary touches. the national anthem will be sung by beyonce. this year's prime for a party and several hundred thousand people from across the united states have traveled here to be a part of it. the inauguration is a celebration of american democracy. a moment for their president to inspire, unite, and speak to his foes and fans. >> president obama leads a politically divided nation. the issues that he will tackle are contentious. today will be an extravagant party, but tough battles lie ahead. >> let's go to my colleague, who is in among the crowd, where hundreds of thousands of gathered to listen to the president
president obama to know, i feel like our country is divided. we need to come together as one. i get to talk to kids. the lady, the mother of that evil kid that shot those kids should have had enough common sense to think, hey, you know what i should be a responsible gun owner and take these guns and lock them out. out of the house and what i want people to remember is our flag is made out of the blood of patriots, do not give up your rights because when you give up your rights you're going to fight with blood to get the rights back. and that second amendment has given us every other amendment and as a sportsman, as a cop, guns are not the problem. we need to become a better country, need to become better parents and responsible. if we're responsible

with president obama's fans, followers would be that of ronald reagan. reagan made the country feel good about itself, and i think that is an element that president obama has. the people that believe in his agenda, believe in him, believe in what he's been able to accomplish. there's a parallel of how they connect to that president, and i think that that is the parallel between reagan and president obama. these folks right here, these wage earners, these middle class answerers, they know that guy in that limousine is their guy. they know that he cares about them, and there is an emotional connection. >> the presidential reviewing stand there out in front of the white house. i am rachel maddow here from our location at the newseum. chris matthews is taking over our coverage now of the inaugural parade along with martin bashir. he will see you again at 9:00 eastern. all our prime time shows will be live. this is going to be a very fun day and a very fun night. this is msnbc's coverage of the second inauguration of president barack obama. humans. even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we sti
